I've sent out a bunch of the LCDs·
already and there's still plenty left. Thank you again to everyone!
I guess everyone's busy and I'm not so different myself. It sure has been quiet!
I'd love to see some of the ways these have been used and if you'd care to post a photo or two here I'd appreciate it.
If anyone is interested in some of the optional features, I'd be happy to help. It's easy enough to flip the image left, right or up and down for example.
There's also a clever way to make the display appear monochrome in any one of seven colors. For example, it's not so hard to make it green monochrome like an old fashioned CRT.
There's still the potential of finding a larger LCD that's compatable with the controller on these. One clue is how one of the datasheets actually describes a 5.6" LCD.
If anyone finds an inexpensive LCD that's missing a controller and you THINK it might be compatable, set me up with a datasheet and I'll see if it might work. If there's a public source for larger LCDs that's fairly inexpensive I'd consider buying one myself and testing it out with the controller so I can share the results with everyone here.
